Enduring examination after arrest, 1870
[In Fanny & Stella, McKenna] describes Dr James Paul’s strange obsession with the bodies of sodomites. [Paul] was a doctor commissioned by the Metropolitan Police to examine the illnesses and injuries of the police officers as well as the criminals in his jurisdiction, and he was trained by a doctor who also had an obsession with sodomy. 
Dr Paul did not neglect to go into the most explicit detail in describing his physical examination of Fanny and Stella. McKenna quotes Dr Paul’s examination of Stella: ‘I examined Boulton [Stella], and found him to be a man…. The anus was dilated, and more dilatable, and the muscles surrounding the anus easily opened’ [McKenna]. Of Fanny, McKenna quotes Dr Paul as saying, ‘[t]he anus was very much dilated…and dilatable to a very great extent. The rectum was large, and there was some discoloration around the edge of the anus, caused probably by sores’ [McKenna] …

29th April 1870: An excited crowd looks on as Ernest Boulton and Frederick Park in full drag leave Bow Street Magistrates’ Court the morning after their arrest at the Strand Theatre. Thomas Ernest Boulton [Stella] and Frederick William Park [Fanny] were arrested the 10th of April 1870, in London for public lewdness. 

The arrest of the flamboyantly dressed Miss Fanny Park and Miss Stella Boulton precipitated a sensational show trial that shocked and titillated Victorian London in equal measure.  For the alluring Fanny and Stella were no ordinary young women.  Far from it.  In fact, they were young men who liked to dress as women.  As the trial of ‘the Young Men in Women’s Clothes’ unfolded, Fanny and Stella’s extraordinary lives as wives and daughters, actresses and whores were revealed to an incredulous public.
